About ALCAT Testing
The ALCAT Test is NOT an “allergy” or IgE test. Nor is it an IgG food sensitivity test.
Available for over 25 years, The ALCAT Test is a laboratory method for identification of non-IgE mediated reactions to foods, chemicals, and other categories of substances. The test identifies cellular reactions to over 350 foods, chemicals and other substances. These potential triggers of inflammation have been linked to chronic health problems like migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, eczema, hyperactivity/ADD, asthma and even obesity. The ALCAT Test is available in the United States as well as the U.K., Italy, Denmark, Jordan,Thailand, Hong Kong, Spain, Mexico, Greece, Germany, Australia, Malaysia and South America including Chile, Colombia and Argentina. Please see our Worldwide Distributors Page for more details regarding testing outside of the U.S and Canada.
Recently, Dr. Robert Sheeler, former professor at the Mayo Medical School, wrote an open letter to the healthcare industry about the Alcat Test. Read the letter (pdf).
